City €lerk of Ihe City of Chicago, in accordance witli

Chicago, April 14, A. D. 1919. 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 



Necessity for the Calluig of a Special Meeting. 

The Clerk presented the following communication 
submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was or- 
dered published and placed on file: 

Chicago, April 12. 1919. 
Hon. Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — Wo have been asked whether or not it 
will be necessary to call a special meeting of tho City 
Council (it having adjourned to meet April 28. 1919^ 
for the purpose of giving the newly elected city offi- 
cials the opportunity to qualify within tho time fixed 
by law. 

Section 12, paragraph 1331 of Chapter 2i, ,Jnnos & 
Addington's Illinois Annotated Statutes, page 919, pro- 
vides as follows : 

"It shall bo the duty of the village or city clerk. 
within five days after the result of the election is 
declared or appointment made, to notify all persons 
elected or appointed to office of their election or ap- 
pointment, and unless such persons shall respec- 
tively qualify in ten days after such notice, the office 
.shall become vacant." 

The above section applies to all city officials elected 
to office on April 1, 1919, namely, the Mayor, the City 
Treasurer, City Clerk and members of the City Council. 

Section 4, paragraph 1347, chapter 24, .Tones & Ad- 
dington's Illinois Annotated Statutes, page 973, pro- 
vides that city officials shall qualify by taking an oath 
or affirmation, subscribing the same and filing it in the 
--offiice of the Clerk. It further provides that: 

"all such officers except aldermen and trustees, shall, 
before entering upon the duties of their respective 
offices, execute a bond with surety, to be approved 
by the city council or board of trustees, payable to 
the city or village, in such penal sum as may, by res- 
olution or ordinance, be directed, conditioned for 
the faithful performance of the duties of the office 
and the payment of all moneys received by such 
officer, according to law and tho ordinances of said 
s.city or village: provided, however, that in no case 



shall the mayors bond be fixed at a less sum than 
three thousand dollars ($3,000) ; nor shall tho treas- 
urer's bond be fixed at a less sum than the amount 
of the estimated tax and special assessments for the 
current year — which bonds shall be filed with the 
clerk (except the bond of the clerk which shall be 
filed with the treasurer.)" 

It will thus be seen that members-elect of tho City 
Council qualify by taking, subscribing, and filing the 
oath provided for by the Statute within ten days of 
the receipt of the notice sent out by the City Clerk. 
While it has been the custom of the City Clerk to ad- 
minister the oath to the newly elected members of the 
City Council at a regular meeting thereof, the law does 
not require tliem to wait until such meeting before tak- 
ing and filing the oath. They may do so as soon as 
notified of their election and thus become fully 
qualified. 

The Mayor, City Clerk, and City Treasurer, arc also 
required by law to take, subscribe, and file oaths of 
office as provided by statute, and in addition thereto 
to execute bonds with good and sufficient security to 
be approved by the City Council. 

In our judgment, in order to meet the requirements 
of the Statute, the bonds of the Mayor, City Clerk and 
City Treasurer, should be submitted to the City Coun- 
cil for approval within ten days of the receipt of the 
notice of election sent out by the City Clerk. 

The official proclamation of the result of tho April 
1st election was made on the 7th day of April, 1919, 
and we are advised that the City Clerk sent out notices 
April 11th and 12th — within the five-day period fixed 
by law for the sending out of such notices. It is ob- 
vious that if the next meeting of the council is not 
held until April 28, 1919, the Mayor, Clerk and Treas- 
urer cannot comply with the law which requires them 
to qualify within ten days after the receipt of the 
notice sent out by the City Clerk. 

We are therefore, of the opinion that a special 
meeting of the City Council should be called for a date 
not later than April 21, 1919, for the purpose of afford- 
ing the Mayor. City Clerk and City Treasurer, an op- 
porlunity to present their bonds to said City Council 
for its approval as required by law. 
Yours very truly.

First Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Boai'd of Education: Appointments of Members. 

The Mayor submitted the following communication: 

Office op the Mayor,| 
Chicago, May 19, 1919.| 

To the. Honor able, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — In accordance with the statement rela- 
tive to the public schools contained in my second in- 
augural message submitted to your' honorable body on 
April 28th, and by virtue of the power and authority 
in me vested by an act of the -General Assembly of the 
State of Illinois, approved and in force April 20, 1917, 
I hereby appoint the following-named persons to be 
members of the Board of Education of the City of Chi- 
cago for the respective terms herein designated, 
namely: 

For the term of five years : 

Mrs. Lulu M. Snodgrass. ^ 

Mr. Samuel Gessler. 
For the term of four years : 

Dr. Boleslaus Klarkowski. 

Mr. James B. Rezny. 
For the term of three years: 

Mrs. Frances E. Thornton. 

Dr. Sadie Bay Adair. 
For the term of two years : 

Mr. Edwin S. Davis. 

Mr. Albert H. Severinghaus. 
For the term of one year: 

Mr. Hart Hanson. 

Mr. Francis E. Croarkin. 

Mr. George B. Arnold, 

and ask the approval by your honorable body of said 
appointees. 

For the information of the new members of the City 
Council, and to clear up any possible misunderstanding 
as to the present school board situation, I call atten- 
tion briefly to the following facts- 

On April 20, 1917, an Act of the General Assembly 
was approved by the Governor of Illinois which re- 
quired the appointment by the Mayor of a Board of 
Education of eleven members for the City of Chicago 
to replace the Board of twenty-one members then in 
existence. The new la.\v was considered of such urgf iit 



necessity that it was passed as an emergency measure, 
giving it immediate effect. 

Under the duty imposed upon me by this law, I sub- 
mitted to the City Council as then constituted on April 
23, 1917, the names of two persons to be members of 
the new Board. On April 30, 1917, the City Council 
approved these appointments. 

iSoon thereafter I submitted the names of nine other 
persons to complete the Board of eleven members pro- 
vided for by the Act of April 20, 1917, but the Supreme 
Court in the October term last year decided that these 
appointments were not approved by the City Council, 
and therefore no school board, had been created under 
that statute. 

In an opinion submitted to the City Council on No- 
vember 18, 1918 (C. P. 1116-7) the Corporation Counsel 
advised that the failure of the two persons appointed 
on April 23, 1917, to qualify as members of the new 
Board within thirty days as required by law, created 
vacancies in those two offices, thus making it necessary 
to submit for approval eleven appointments. 

I therefore submitted the names of -eleven persons to 
act as members of the Board of Education of the City 
of Chicago, in accordance with the provisions of the 
Act of April 20, 1917. The Chicago Daily News and the 
Chicago Tribune bitterly opposed certain of these ap- 
pointees, to whom they referred as the "Solid Six", 
evidently meant as a term of derision but in reality a 
title of honor for the manner in which they stood solid- 
ly for the interests of the people against the sinister 
interests which would exploit and plunder the people. 
These newspapers editorially advised the City Council 
to oppose the selection of a Board at that time, arguing 
that in the mayoralty election soon to be held the 
people might elect a different Mayor and that he should 
have the appointment of the Board of Education. On 
November 18th, 1918, the City Council voted against 
approving the nominations then before them. 

In this way the question of the approval of the 
Mayor's appointees as members of the Board of Edu- 
cation was made a political question and became one 
of the issues of the mayoralty campaign. In nearly 
every one of some three hundred speeches on munici- 
pal affairs which I made during the primary and elec- 
tion campaigns, and* in many communications sent 
through the mail to the people of Chicago, I took occa- 
sion to discuss the school question, which my opponents 
had made an issue of tha campaign, and I pledged the 
people of Chicago that if I should be re-elected Mayor, 
the persons to whom the Chicago Daily News and Chi- 
cago Tribune objected would be reappointed. 

This question having been thus so widely discussed 
and the question having been made an issue of the 
campaign, the people by their votes approved those 
members of the Board. 

It therefore becomes my duty under the law and in 
accordance with my pledge to the people of Chicago 
to submit these names and respectfully request their 
approval by your honorable body to the end that the 
intent and purpose of the law which requires- the ap- 
pointment of a Board of eleven members may be ful- 
filled without further delay, and the wishes of the peo- 
ple as signified by their votes be respected. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Request for an Appropriation for Expense of Opposiiiy 

the Application of Street Railway Companies 

for an Increase in the Rate of Fare. 

Tiic :\layor submitted the following communication, 
which was, together with the communication trans- 
mil led therewith, ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Finance: 

Office op the Mayor,| 
Chic-vgo, May 19, 1919. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith a communication 
from the Corporation Counsel calling attention to the 
n(>c(>ssity of malving financial provision to carry on the 
light of the City of Chicago against the application of 
the Chicago Surface Lines for an increase in fare. 

I respectfully recommend the reference of the sub- 
ject to an appropriate committee for early attention. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. H.-vle Thompson, 

Mayor. 

The following communication was submitted with 
the foregoing communication: 

Dep.'\rtment op Law,] 
Chicago, May 3, 1919. j 

Hon. Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — As you know, grossly inadequate financial 
provision was made for defending on behalf of the City 
and the people against the application of the Chicago 
Surface Lines for an increase in rates of fare, whicli 
application was recently denied; and consequently only 
a small part of the expense of defending against that 
application has been paid. 

On that application the Surface Lines relied on the 
contract valuation of their properties under their con- 
tract-ordinances with the City; but the Commission.- 
among other things, held that such contract valuation 
could not be accepted for rate making purposes. 

The Surface Lines have applied to the Commission 
to reopen the case for the purpose of permitting them 
to introduce additional evidence, including evidence of 
the actual value of their properties. 

If the Commission reopens the case — and prudence 
requires us to anticipate the possibility of their doing 
so — the City will have to make very extensive prepara- 
tion for the new hearing, especially in collecting and 
preparing for introduction proper evidence of the true~ 
value of the properties of the companies. 

Therefore steps ought to be taken in the near future 
to provide the funds necessary for the protection of the 



interests of the people on this new hearing, if llic 

Commi-ssion should reopen the case.

Yours sincerely,

The Mayor submitted the folowing coiiimunication: 

Office of the Mayor,| 
Chica'go, May 19, 1919. | 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — The Thirty-third or Prairie Division 
of the National Army is returning from service in 
France. This Division, comprised exclusively of vol- 
unteer troops of the Illinois National Guard, was called 
into service when our country first entered the War and 
have therefore been on active military duty for over 
two years. 

The first unit of this Division to return from overseas 
is the 132nd Infantry, the old Second Illinois Regi- 
ment, commanded by Col. Abel Davis, which arrived 
at New York on Saturday, May 17th. The other units 
are now on the ocean and will reach our shores within 
the coming week. 

Other regiments of the Thirty-third Division so 
soon to arrive in this country are the 131st Infantry 
which was Chicago's old First Regiment, commanded 
by Col. J. B. Sanborn; the 122nd Field Artillery, form- 
erly the First Illinois Cavalry of Chicago, commanded 
by Col. Milton J. Foreman; the 108th Ammunition 
trains, which was Chicago's old Seventh Regiment, and 
the 108th Engineers, recruited in Chicago and com- 
manded by Col. Henry A. Allen. The remaining units 
of the Thirty-third Division such as the 129th and 
iSOth Infantry and the 123rd and 124th Artillery rep- 
resent established military organizations from cities 
and towns throughout the State of Illinois and are also 
due in the United States within a few days. They will 
pass through Chicago and be received and reviewed on- 
route to Camp Grant to be mustered out.

Th(> following is said I'csolution as adopted: 

^^'H^:Hl•;.\s, The (Mty Ccnnicil oi' the Cily of Cliicago, 
with the co-operation of representatives of Chicago 
architects, builders and real estate organizations, has 
made a study of the provisions of the Housing Bill, 
known as Senate Bill No. 165, pending io the General 
.\ssembly of the State of Illinois, and, as the result 
of said .study, has reached the conclusion that the 
pi'ovisions of said bill would injure rather than im- 
prove housing conditions, especially in the City of Chi- 
cago, for rea,sons set forth in the attached statement 
prepared by the Commissioner of Buildings of the City 
of Chicago, which statement is hereby made a part of 
tlis resolution; and 

Where.vs, The City Council of the City of Chicago is 
heai'tily in favor of the enactment by the General As- 
sembly of a Housing Bill if same is properly drafted 
by experienced architects and builders who are familiar 
with conditions and needs in the various large cities 
tl I'ougl out llie state; therefore, be it 

Rasolred. That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago hereby respectfully requests the General Assembly 
of the State of Illinois not to enact said Senate Bill 
No. 165, but in lieu* ther.'of to enact a bill providing 
foi- the creation of a commission of architects and ex- 
[lerl builders in the State of Illinois for tlie purpose 
of drafting a proper housing bill to be submitted to the 
ni x; (iiMii-ral Assembly for enactment. 

The following communication was attach(>d to the 
foi-egoing resolution: 

Department of Buildings, | 
Chicago, May 19, 191&.J 
7'o the Honorable, thejiayor, and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — On February 26, 1919, Senate Bill No. 
165, known as the Housing Law. of Illinois was intro- 
duced before the State Legislature. The bill is very 
faulty and general protest was made against its passage. 
It was then temporarily withdrawn and amended and 
is to be again offered by Senator Kessinger. 

The "Amendments to Senate Bill No. 165" is practic- 
ally a substitute bill and is as faulty or more so than 
the original hill. In addition to other objections most 
of its provisions are so conflicting as to be impossible 
(if enforcement. Its definitions in many cases do not 
define, as its author betrays but slight knowledge of 
building terms and building materials. 

The ''Chicago Tenement House Ordinance" which 
has been revised and improved and which is and has 
i)een in effect for the past sixteen years, has been prac- 
tically ignored in the compilation of this bill. 

If this bill is passed the Chicago ordinances whose 
enforcement have produced such splendid results in 
this city must be discarded and entirely rewritten 



with such radical changes that the entire building and 
real estate situation in Chicago will be upset, and with 
no relative improvement effected for living conditions 
in dwellings erected under the provisions of the act. 

The bill is intended to apply to every incorporated 
city, town or village in the State with a population of 
10,000 or more, and could in. its present form, as easily 
or with even greater ease, be made to apply to cities, 
towns and villages with a population of 500 or more, 
as in such a situation the sparse population and prac- 
tically unlimited land area would be peculiarly adapted 
to the provisions of the bill. 

In a city such as Chicago, however, the o[)eration 
of the bill will practically prevent building upon 
( very single lot less than -'i5 feet wide. This is unrea- 
sonable and unnecessary, as the operation of the "Chi- 
cago Tenement House Ordinance" as proved. 

The situation in Chicago and the larger cities of the 
State together with the "Chicago Tenement House 
Ordinance" should be studied. This has not been 
done and unless the good features of the "Chicago 
Tenement House Ordinance" are incorporated within 
the bill it should not apply to this city. 

In addition there is very little of a remedial nature 
within the bill, it legalizes many bad practices and 
swill perpetuate some of the worst features of hous- 
ing that are deplored at present. This is with par- 
ticular reference to the occupation of attic rooms, 
basement rooms and apartments, and indirectly lighted 
and ventilated rooms allowed by the bill. 

The bill further is not up to date, as it does not 
make the slightest reference to the compulsory fur- 
nishing of heat in so-called iheated apartments. The 
principals of stairways and exit equipment in hotels, 
hospitals, asylums and dwellings as laid down by 
the Chicago ordinances are completely upset and to 
compensate for the inferior stairway and exit equip- 
jnent of the bill a number of very burdensome 
requirements must be added to the 'Chicago ordi- 
nances. 

At the time Senate Bill No. 296 was introduced be^ 
fore the State Legislature in 1917 it was studied by a 
committee composed of representatives from the 
American Institute of Architects, the Illinois Society 
of Architects, the Chicago Department of Buildings 
and the Sanitary Bureau of the Chicago Department 
of Health. Many provisions were redrafted and 
amended by this committee but w'ere completely ig- 
nored in amending the said bill, which, however, 
failed of passage at that time. 

In drawing up the present housing bill the Chicago 
situation has not been studied and no representative 
persons familiar with the Chicago situation have been 
asked to assist in the preparation of this bill, or to 
criticise its provisions previous to it being presented 
to the State Legislature. 

I will, therefore, recommend that your Honorable 
Body take such consistent action requesting that no 
housing bill applying to the City of Chicago be passed 
until the Chicago situation 'in conjunction with the 
Tenment House Ordinance of this cily is thoroughly 
studied. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed"! "^ Charles Bostrom, 

Commissioner of Buildings.

ELEVENTH WARD. 

Aid. Cullerton presented the following order, which 
was, on motion, duly passed : 

Whereas, The people of Chicago have long been 
the victims of many bold and glaring crimes, and the 
constant escape of the criminals perpetrating these 
crimes indicate some fundamental error, and 

Whereas. The admittedly inadequate force of pa- 
trolmen is hardly sufficient excuse for continued 
failure to capture criminals, and 

Whereas, The Police Signal System is the actual 
nerve center and guiding intelligence, being the only 
means of communication between superior officers 
■ and the patrolmen oh the beat, and 

Whereas, The present system was installed oyer 
forty years ago, employing . electrical construction 
now admitted antiquated, and is now being operated 
at an annual cost of $250,000, although under recent 
investigation the entire equipment was declared to 
be less than 20% efficient and unfit, in point of op- 
eration and equipment to bear the burden demanded; 
also the ever7increasing overhead required for re- 
pairs and renewals, an excessive and unwarranted 
waste of public funds, and 

Whereas, It is well known that a police system 
of modern construction simplifies the w^ork of quick, 
reliable and accurate communication, experienced 
police officials agreeing that it is equivalent to a 
greatly increased force, and 

Whereas, Time, wear and depreciation have 
wrought havoc with the physical condition of both 
the Fire Alarm and Police Signal Systems of Chi- 
cago, and has only been averted through the skill 
and experience at Headquarters, and 

Whereas, An efficient and well protected police 
system unquestionably means an appreciable reduc- 
tion in crime, and

Aid. Touhy, Kavanagb and others presented the fol- 
lowing resolution, which was, on motion, duly adopted: 

WiiEREAS, The present postal facilities of Chicago 
are altogether inadequate, and an immediate and 
large increase of such facilities is required not only 
to take cai'e of the business of Chicago, but also to 
serve the entire northern portion of the Mississippi 
Valley which needs' an efficient system of handling 
mail to and from the great central market of Chi- 
cago, as shown by resolutions passed by business or- 
ganizations in numerous cities between the Alle- 
gheny and Rocky Mountains; and 

Whereas, Investigations over a number of years 
have shown that the only effective means of reliev- 
ing the postal congestion in Chicago is the erection 
of a new postoffice on the two-block site located on ■ 
South Canal street, between West Madison and West 
Adams streets, adjacent to the Northwestern Station 
and the new Union Station under construction, ter- 
minals througth which sixty-two per cent of Chi-

cago's mall tonnage is handled, and this site pos- 
sesses a maximum of street access and transportation 
facilities; and 

Whereas, During the war Llie City of Chicago 
willingly consiMited to the postponement of the new- 
postoil'ice in order that all the resources of the na- 
cion migliL he conccntraled upon liie wiiniing of tlie 
war; but 

Whereas, It is now imperative for the expansion 
of business and the readjustment from war to peace 
conditions that adequate postal facilities should bo 
provided without delay; and 

Whereas, The cost of the site will st(>ailily in- 
crease and tbe acquisition of the ground at the pres- 
ent time' and the beginning of construction of the 
now postoITice building would help solve the serious 
[)rohlen) of unemployment and would he in accord- 
ance with the plea of the National Government to 
prevent widespread idleness by prosecuting public 
improvements with vigor; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the City Council 
of Chicago, in meeting assembled, that we appeal to 
the Congress of the United States to appropriate 
immediately the money necessary for the acquisi- 
tion of the site named and the construction of a new 
postoffice building thereon; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That we earnestly urge 
both upon Congress and upon the Secretary of the 
Treasury that all other necessary action be taken to 
begin the erection of the new postoffice building 
upon the site named, at the earliest possible date; 
and 

Be It Further Resolved, That a copy of this reso- 
lution be forwarded to the Speaker of the National 
House of Representatives, the President of the 
United States Senate, the Postmaster General, and to 
- the United States Senators and Congressmen from 
the State of Illinois.

Veto. 



Board of Education: Tax Levy for 1919. 

The Mayor submitted the following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, May 26, 1919.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago: 

Gentlemen — I herewith return, without my approval, 
an ordinance passed by Your Honorable Body on May 
19, 1919, and appearing on page 135 of the Journal of 
the Proceedings of the City Council of that date, where- 
by a levy of taxes for school purposes is made. 

My reason for vetoing this ordinance is due to the 
fact that if this ordinance were approved and the levies 
for school purposes were to be made and certified to 
the County Clerk at this time the Board of Education 
would be foreclosed and limited to the tax now author- 
ized by law and could not take axivantage of any in- 
creased rate of taxation that may be authorized by the 
Legislature for the current year. Moreover, there 



wiould be grave doubt as to the validity of other tax 
levies for the city, to be made later on, if this proposed 
ordinance were permitted to become effective at the 
present time. 

The Legislature, in order to bridge over the difficulties 
of the present financial situation, passed an Act with an 
einiergency clause, which is now a law, permitting the 
city during the year 1919 to either pass its annual ap- 
propriation bill at any time before July first, or to 
pass additional or supplemental appropriation bills 
during the first half of the year amending its ap- 
propriation bill and relating back to the commence- 
ment of the fiscal year. This Act, however, does not 
contemplate the passage of a series of tax levy ordi- 
nances. It was designed to make it possible to pass one 
tax levy ordinance after the first of July, when the 
proposed new tax rate becomes effective, which should 
include levies based on such annual appropriation bill 
and additional and supplemental appropriation bills. 
I am advised by the Corporation Counsel that to at- 
tempt to pass ordinances levying taxes piecemeal would 
open the way to an attack on th^ validity of all except 
the first levy. 

While it may be that the levy for school purposes 
can be distinguished from the other city levies, it ap- 
pears that there is enough doubt on this point to make 
it unwise to proceed in the manner that this ordinance 
would make necessary even if the ordinance would not 
have the effect of crippling the schools as indicated 
above. Especially is this true in view of the fact that 
the emergency law above mentioned makes it possible 
to issue certificates of indebtedness to the extent of 
one-fourth of the school appropriations pending the 
passage of the annual tax levy ordinance, thus pro- 
viding for the immediate needs of the school board. 

I have therefore caused an ordinance to be drafted 
authorizing the issuance of certificates of indebtedness 
to the extent of one-fourth of the appropriations here- 
tofore made for educational purposes, and I submit 
same herewith. The passage of this substitute ordi- 
nance is necessary in order that the salaries of the 
teachers may be paid when they fall due^ — otherwise 
they could not be paid beyond the first of June. My 
recommendation is that the vote by which the said 
school tax levy ordinance was passed be reconsidered, 
and that the ordinance submitted herewith be passed 
in lieu thereof without the usual reference to a com- 
mittee. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Richert moved to reconsider the vote by which 
said vetoed ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Board of Education: Issuance of Certificates of Indebt- 
edness in Anticipation of Taxes to Levied. 

No motion being made to pass said vetoed ordinance, 
unanimous consent was given for consideration of the 
substitute ordinance submitted with said veto message. 

Aid. Richert moved to pass said substitute ordinance.

this ordinance, and that the said loan be immediately

Section 4. This ordinance shall take effect and be 
in force from and after its passage and approval.

which was, together with the communication trans-

Office of the Mayor,|

In Re Demobilization of the U. S. Armjy. 

The Clerk submitted the following communication, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

War Department,"! 
The Adjutant General's Office,}. 
Washington, May 19^ 1919.J 
Mr. James T. Igoe, City Clerk, City of Chicago, Illinois: 

Dear Sir — The Secretary of War directs me to ac- 
knowledge receipt of your letter addressed to the 
President under date of May 6th, and referred to the 
War Department, transmitting therewith a copy of 
resolution of the City Council of Chicago with refer- 
ence to the President declaring the U. S. Army demob- 
ilized on July 1, 1919. 

In this connection the Secretary of War directs me 
to advise you that the demobilization of the Army will 
not be completed by that date. It will therefore be 
impossible to make a statement of fact on July 1, 1919, 
that the U. S. Army is demobilized. 

Since the signing of the armistice November 11, 1918, 
over 2,080,000 officers and enlisted men have been dis- 
charged from the service. Of this number over 859,000 
officers and men have been brought back from the A. 
E. F., leaving a remainder still to be returned from 
France and to be demobilized of about 1,000,000 officers 
and men. 

General Pershing is returning troops from France 
just as fast as the availability of shipping will permit. 
About 287,000 were returned during the month of 
April, and it is hoped to increase this number to 300,- 
000 in May and to keep up this rate until the entire 
A. E. F. has been brought back to the United States. 

It must be remembered that it took one year and a 
half to transport the American Expeditionary Forces, 
amounting to about two million men, to France. The 
War Department was assisted in this operation by all 
available shipping that could possibly be gotten to- 
gether for it by the Allies. In fact, over 50% of our 
troops were taken to Europe by Allied shipping. Now 
this Allied shipping which was loaned to the United 
States, is being used to return the colonial troops of 
the Allies to their homes, which is nothing more than 
just, since some^^f them have not seen their homes for 
three or four years. Notwithstanding the lack of 
Allied assistance that was had in putting our Army in 
France, by use of all available battle ships and cruisers 
of the Navy, freighters converted into transports, and 
commercial ships lately secured from Germany,- the 
troops are now being brought back at a faster rate 
than they were taken over. 

Regretting under the circumstances that the War 
Department cannot grant more favorable action upon 
the resolution of the City Council, I am 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) . Julius A. Penn, 

Adjutant General.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 



Department of Smoke Inspection: in Re Transfer to 
the Department of Health. 

The Clerk presented the following communication 
submitted by the Commissioner of Health, which was 



referred to the Committee on Efficiency, Economy and 
Rehabilitation: 

Department of Health, | 
Chicago, May 26, 1919.J 

To the Honorable, Mayor and City Council, City of 

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In the interest of efficiency and econ- 
omy I respectfully suggest that the Department of 
Smoke Inspection be transferred to the Sanitary Bu- 
reau of the Health Department. This is desirable for 
many reasons : 

It will replace smoke prevention activities where 
they originated and where they properly belong. 

It will result in a saving of $8,630.00 per aimum 
to the city. 

It will prevent a large amount of duplication of 
inspection work and examination of plans, and it 
will materially increase the efficiency of the serv- 
ice and the results accompHshed. 

In the arrangement I suggest, all of the present em- 
ployes of the Smoke Inspection Department will be re- 
tained with the exception of the Smoke Inspector, 
that is the head of the department. The increases pro- 
vided for in the 1919 budget of the Smoke Inspection 
Department would be dispensed with and three en- 
gineers substituted. 

The work performed by the Smoke Inspection De- 
partment in the past has been commendable; it has been 
all that we could expect considering the handicaps un- 
der which they are operating. Nevertheless, we must 
admit that the results obtained have been far from sat- 
isfactory. The insufficient force provided for the de- 
partment and the viewpoint of smoke prevention as a 
business or financial proposition cannot in the nature 
of things be successful. True, numerous losses result 
to property and to varied business interests where the 
air is filled with smoke and dust and grime — losses 
amounting into millions each year. Nevertheless, smoke 
prevention is primarily a health promoting activity and 
from this standpoint only can we successfully attack 
the problem. 

There is an old saying that "A red sun means a high 
death rate"'. It is a saying that has been repeatedly 
verified by comparing meteorlogical data with mortuary 
statistics. A red sun is caused by smoke and dirt in 
the air obstructing and breaking up the light rays, al- 
lowing only the coarser and more vigorous red portion 
of the spectrum to reach the earth. The actinic rays, 
violets and blues, that is the higher portion of the spec- 
trum, are the sterilizing, health-giving rays, but these 
are the most feeble parts and do not reach the earth, 
except when the air is comparatively clear. You see, 
therefore, that there is a scientific basis in fact for the 
saying referred to. 

You are familiar with our successful efforts in giving 
Chicago a clean water supply. All our water is chlori- 
nated and is, I believe without question, the purest wa- 
ter supply of any large city in the United States. You 
are also acquainted with our successful efforts in giv- 
ing Chicago a clean milk supply. All our milk is now 
pasteurized. The result of these activities has been to 
give us the lowest typhoid rate of any city in the world 
and to make Chicago the healthiest city of any in the 
United States. However, we can do much more. 

Our death rate from pneumonia and tuberculosis and

I lie other so-ealled foul air diseases, while comparing 
favot-ably with those of other cities has not shown the 
marked improvement that we would like to see, and 
this improvement cannot be accomplished until we have 
given Chicago a clean air supply. This means efficient 
smoke prevention. It means more than this — it means 
better control of building activities, better street clean- 
ing, better control of various industries that contami- 
nate the air, but our first blow and the one that will 
result in the most immediate improvement is in smoke 
prevention. 

The Smoke Inspection Department as at present or- 
ganized cannot do this work. Even with the proposed 
increases in the annual budget they will have only ap- 
proximately sixteen men for field work, and it is a 
physical impossibility for this force to cover the city. 
The Sanitary Bureau of the Chicago Health Department 
has fifty-four inspectors in the field. The Division of 
Ventilation of this bureau has competent engineers 
trained in boiler testing and boiler efficiency work. 
They are covering parctically the same ground, even 
including manufacturing establishments and power 
houses. They examine all plans as to the mechanical 
equipment that are now examined by the Smoke In- 
spection Department. The incorporation, therefore, of 
the Smoke Inspection Department into the organization 
of the Sanitary Bureau will prevent this duplication of 
work both in the examination of plans and in the field. 

I do not contend that the entire field force of the 
Sanitaiy Bureau is particularly trained in this work, 
nor do I believe that this is necessary. I believe, how- 
ever, that they can be instructed to make the necessary 
observations and reports, leaving the technical engin- 
eering features for special assignment. 

If you decide to act favorably upon this suggestion 1 
will guarantee to make Chicago the cleanest city of any 
in the country burning the same proportional amount 
of bituminous coal within the next two years, and will 
further agree in the succeeding two years to make it 
the equal of any city irrespective of the character of 
its fuel. 

I submit herewith the proposed changes in the bud- 
get necessary for the transfer. It would also be neces- 
sary for the Law Department to draft an ordinance re- 
pealing Sections 2337 to 2353, inclusive of Chapter 
XLVII, and to amend the rest of the chapter to read 
"Commissioner of Health" in place of "Smoke Inspec- 
tor," in every instance where the latter name appears. 
The appropriation for the Department of Smoke In- 
spection should be transferred to the Ventilation Divi- 
sion of the Bureau of Sanitation, Department of Health. 
The appropriation for this division would then be as 
follows : 

Engineer in Charge, 1 at $2,700.00 per an- 
num $ 2.700.00 

Engineer in Charge, 3 at $3,000.00 each per 

annum 9,000.00

i-M'nior Clerk, 1 at $1,680.00 per annum 1,680.00

Total $37,740.00 

I respectfully urge your Honorable Body that this 
proposed transfer be made and that it be referred to 
the proper committee for action at an early date. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) John Dill Robertson, 

Commissioner of Health.

Chicago, May 20, 1919.

Y''our Committee on Judiciary to whom were referred 
(May 5. 1919, page 118) a resolution providing for 
the creation of a commission to prepare and formu- 
late a program of Chicago's constitutional needs; 
(May 5, 1919, page 118) a resolution providing for 



the method of election of the chairman and mem- 
ners (from the City Council) of a proposed special 
conmiittee for the formulation of a program of Chi- 
cago's constitutional needs; and 

(May 5, 1919, page 118j a resolution providing for 
the method of appointment of members (otlier than 
aldermeni of a proposed special committee for the 
formulation of a program of Chicago's constitutional 
needs, 

iiaving had the same under advisement, beg Lgave to 
report and recommend the adoption of the resolution 
herewilh submitted as a substitute for the foregoing 
three resolutions: 

Whereas the Senate has provided that the delegates 
to the Constitutional Convention shall be nominated at 
a primary September 10th, and elected November ith, 
1919, and that the constitutional convention shall con- 
vene on the 6th day of January, 1920; 

And wlien^as the campaign to bring about the Con- 
stitutional Convention has been conducted by citizens 
of Chicago, with the purpose of securing greater pow- 
ers to the Municipal government of Chicago; 

And whereas during the educational campaign for 
the convention, numerous, and in some instances rad- 
ical proposals for changes have been made; and little 
consideration has been given to the merits or desir- 
ability of some of these suggestions; 

And whereas before presenting all or any of these 
proposals to the Convention, they should be digested, 
analyzed and considered from a standpoint of practic- 
ability, in order that they may fit harmoniously into 
the new structure of Municipal government for Chi- 
cago; 

And whereas data should be accumulated and a com- 
plete and comprehensive study and survey made of the 
entire list of proposals suggested so far, so that there 
will be unanimity of action in the. preparation of Chi- 
cago's program, and so there will be no conflict at the 
'doors of the convention by various conflicting interests 
each seeking to be heard by the Convention and each 
claiming to represent Chicago and public sentiment; 

And whereas the question arises, under what aus- 
pices or leadership a complete, rational, comprehen- 
sive program of Chicago's Constitutional requirements 
shall be worked out; whether under the leadership of 
numerous interested private individuals, organizations, 
societies, clubs and associations; or more properly 
under the auspices of the legally constituted represen- 
tatives of the city, namely, the aldermen, assisted by 
public spirited citizens; 

Therefore he it resolved by the City Council, It is 
of the utmosli importance that within the next seven 
months a practicable municipal program, should be 
worked out and ready for presentation to the Consti- 
tutional convention; and believing it to be our duty 
as Aldermen to undertake this work; we hereby create 
by this resolution the Chicago Council Commission on 
Constitutional Proposals. 

The said Commission shall consist of the following 
members of the City Council, which alderrnen shall be 
a special Council Committee on Constitutional Proposals 
to which all constitutional matters shall be referred 
and which Committee shall continue until the Consti-
